3 miles ...pop 65, but the sign hasn't been updated since the timber industry died in the '80's.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

Unfortunately I live on the edge of town but my backyard backs up to fields so no neighbors behind me anyway. Town population just under 7,000

Due to the increased price of ammo, don't expect a warning shot...

Here in Texas about 20 miles either way to towns of 10K or so. About the same in Idaho.

Our town is about 1/2 mile but its only 400-500 folks in town (unincorporated) itself, about 1500 more in outlying areas. Were about 25 miles to the nearest real town (about 7000 pop) with supermarket, hospital, restaurants, etc.

7 miles to town - population 900 (county seat). The county is 5000 sq miles, population is 4000 and about 28,000 head of cattle.

next closest town is 30 miles away - population 7, consists of a bar and post office.

closest town of over a 1000 (3000 population) is 55 miles, closest town of over 100,000 is 200 miles away.

There are getting to be too many people here.
